LOS ANGELES, July 23, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- RBB Bancorp (NASDAQ:RBB) and its subsidiaries, Royal Business Bank ("the Bank") and RBB Asset Management Company ("RAM"), collectively referred to herein as "the Company", announced financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2018.

The Company reported net income of $9.4 million, or $0.54 diluted earnings per share, for the three months ended June 30, 2018, compared to net income of $8.8 million, or $0.52 diluted earnings per share, and $8.5 million, or $0.62 diluted earnings per share, for the three months ended March 31, 2018 and June 30, 2017, respectively.

"We are very pleased with our operating performance for the second quarter," said Mr. Alan Thian, Chairman, President and CEO. "We delivered another solid quarter of net income, driven by continued momentum in mortgage originations, improved fee income, strong credit quality and careful management of expenses. Our loan pipeline remains strong and we are ramping up our SBA loan production, which is approaching historical levels, although we are seeing an elevated level of SBA loan payoffs impacting our servicing income.

"We are proud to receive an award from the Department of Treasury's Bank Enterprise Award Program as a result of our community investments in the markets that we serve," added Mr. Thian. "We also look forward to closing the previously announced acquisition of First American International Corp. in the second half of this year."   

Key Performance Ratios

Net income of $9.4 million for the second quarter of 2018 produced an annualized return on average assets of 2.18%, an annualized return on average tangible common equity of 15.13%, and an annualized return on average equity of 13.45%.  This compares to an annualized return on average assets of 2.15%, an annualized return on average tangible common equity of 15.01%, and an annualized return on average equity of 13.27% for the first quarter of 2018.  The efficiency ratio for the second quarter of 2018 was 39.72%, compared to 43.85% for the prior quarter.

Net Interest Income and Net Interest Margin

Net interest income, before provision for loan losses, was $17.8 million for the second quarter of 2018, compared to $16.4 million for the first quarter of 2018.  The increase was primarily attributable to an 11 basis point increase in the net interest margin, combined with a $69.9 million increase in average earning assets.  Accretion of purchase discounts contributed $921,000 to net interest income in the second quarter of 2018, compared to $353,000 in the first quarter of 2018. The increase in accretion income was due to increased loan payoff activity in our purchased loan pools.

Compared to the second quarter of 2017, net interest income, before provision for loan losses, increased from $14.0 million. The increase was primarily attributable to a $236.7 million increase in average earning assets, combined with a 35 basis point increase in the net interest margin.

Net interest margin was 4.37% for the second quarter of 2018, an increase from 4.26% in the first quarter of 2018. The increase was primarily attributable to a 24 basis point increase in the yield on earning assets resulting from higher loan discount accretion and higher yields on loans, partially offset by a higher cost of deposits.  Loan discount accretion contributed 23 basis points to the net interest margin in the second quarter of 2018, compared to 9 basis points in the first quarter of 2018.

Noninterest Income

Noninterest income was $2.8 million for the second quarter of 2018, an increase of $338,000 from $2.5 million in the first quarter of 2018.  In the second quarter, gain on loan sales increased by $270,000.

The Company sold $52.9 million in mortgage loans for a net gain of $1.2 million during the quarter ended June 30, 2018, compared to $38.9 million in mortgage loans for a net gain of $983,000 during the quarter ended March 31, 2018. The Company originated $105.8 million in mortgage loans for sale for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, compared with $76.0 million during the quarter ended March 31, 2018.

The Company sold $18.2 million in SBA loans for a net gain of $885,000 during the second quarter of 2018, compared to $17.3 million in SBA loans sold for a net gain of $833,000 during the first quarter of 2018.  SBA loan originations for the second quarter were $11.1 million, compared to $4.6 million for the first quarter of 2018. The increase in SBA loan originations was attributable to the hiring of new SBA business development officers.

Compared to the second quarter of 2017, noninterest income decreased by $382,000. The decrease was primarily attributable to a $204,000 decline in gain on loan sales, and a decline of $200,000 in service charges, fees and other.

Noninterest Expense

Noninterest expense for the second quarter of 2018 was $8.2 million, compared to $8.3 million for the first quarter of 2018.  The decrease was primarily attributable to a $242,000 decrease in salaries and employee benefits expense, partially offset by an increase in legal and professional expenses of $165,000.

Compared to the second quarter of 2017, noninterest expense increased from $7.0 million. The $1.2 million increase was primarily due to an increase in salaries and employee benefits of $466,000, an increase in occupancy and equipment expenses of $107,000, an increase in data processing costs of $33,000, an increase in legal and professional expenses of $127,000 and an increase in other expenses of $508,000.  The increase in salary expense is attributable to additional staff for expansion.  The increase in occupancy expense is mainly due to rent at our Irvine location and temporary space for units pending the completion of our new headquarters office.  The increase in other expenses is attributable to merger expenses of $183,000 and provision for unfunded commitments of $376,000.

Income Taxes

The effective tax rate was 19.5% (including the impact of a deduction for stock options exercised in the amount of $1.1 million) for the three months ended June 30, 2018, 15.2% (including the impact of a deduction for stock options exercised in the amount of $1.4 million) for the three months ended March 31, 2018, and 40.9% for the three months ended June 30, 2017. 

Loan Portfolio

Loans held for investment, net of deferred fees and discounts, totaled $1.28 billion as of June 30, 2018, an increase of $22.2 million, or 7.04% annualized growth, from $1.26 billion at March 31, 2018, and an increase of $138.1 million, or 12.05%, from June 30, 2017.  The increase in loans held for investment from the end of the prior quarter was primarily attributable to growth in the commercial real estate and residential real estate portfolios.

Mortgage loans held for sale were $281.8 million as of June 30, 2018, an increase of $98.4 million from $183.4 million at March 31, 2018. 

Deposits

Deposits were $1.42 billion at June 30, 2018, an increase of $50.9 million, or 14.86% annualized growth, from $1.37 billion at March 31, 2018, and an increase of $146.0 million, or 11.42%, from June 30, 2017. The increase in total deposits from the end of the prior quarter was attributable to growth in interest-bearing non-maturity deposits and certificates of deposit, partially offset by decreases in noninterest-bearing demand deposits.

Noninterest-bearing deposits decreased to $306.4 million as of June 30, 2018, compared to $316.0 million at March 31, 2018.  The decrease is due to one large customer moving noninterest-bearing deposits to money market deposits.  Compared to June 30, 2017 noninterest-bearing deposits increased $90.7 million from $215.7 million

Asset Quality

Nonperforming assets totaled $7.0 million, or 0.38% of total assets at June 30, 2018, an increase from $4.8 million, or 0.28%, of total assets at March 31, 2018.  Nonperforming assets consist of Other Real Estate Owned (foreclosed properties), loans modified under troubled debt restructurings (TDR), non-accrual loans, and loans past due 90 days or more and still accruing interest. Nonperforming assets exclude purchase credit impaired (PCI) loans acquired in prior acquisitions.  The increase in nonperforming assets was primarily due to an increase of $2.1 million consisting of two TDR loans which are still performing.

Loans held-for-investment 30 to 89 days past due decreased to $1.1 million at June 30, 2018, from $2.2 million at March 31, 2018. 

There were no net charge-offs during the second quarter of 2018.

The Company recorded a provision for loan losses of $700,000 for the second quarter of 2018, which was primarily attributable to the growth in total average loans during the quarter.  The Company recorded a provision for loan losses of $184,000 during the first quarter of 2018 and a recapture of $4.2 million during the second quarter of 2017.

The allowance for loan losses totaled $14.7 million, or 1.14% of total loans held for investment, at June 30, 2018, compared with $14.0 million, or 1.11%, of total loans at March 31, 2018.
